Guests in search of an authentic jungle experience won’t be disappointed at Mahua Kothi Jungle Lodge, where just 12 kutiyas scattered around an original homestead disappear into the bamboo fronds.
Given over to natural forest, the vast grounds create a park-like atmosphere that guests are free to explore on bicycles invitingly parked in the private courtyards of their jungle suites.
Eclectic Indian handicrafts create humorous touches and original homestead furniture contributes to the feeling of a personal home.Rural accents, like our traditional vegetable garden or baghia, with a bullock cart that doubles as buffet table, or picnic lunches under the mahua tree, enchant and delight. Cocktails or an evening meal served in the light of the moon on the rooftop of the main veranda enhance the beauty of fragrant Indian nights..
While out on game drive, stop to enjoy a delicious picnic breakfast, complete with freshly brewed coffee. Your morning meal might include Indian delicacies like poha, or saffron rice with fresh vegetables, and pao bhaji, or fresh bread rolls served with tomato and onion.
Take a dip in the swimming pool before lunch, served on the veranda or in the baghiya.
Indulge in an Ayurvedic massage in your room or take a ride around the grounds on one of the many bicycles scattered around the lodge. The guest veranda is the setting for afternoon tea.
AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE
Enter the jungles of Bandhavgarh once again on your afternoon game drive. Look out for gaur, sambar and chital coming down to drink at the many jungle streams. Tiger and leopard are getting ready for the hunt, and you may be lucky enough to spot one of these beautiful predators.
Back at the lodge, dinner will be waiting in the dining area or under the magnificent mahua tree. You may even enjoy a chaupal, an outdoor dinner where traditional tandoori meals are cooked on charcoal. Savour delicious Indian dishes, from curries and roasted vegetables to chilli infused dishes and chutneys. After dinner, go back to your kutiya for a restful night’s sleep.
